Scenes from San Diego Comic-Con

Let's take a look at some of the best cosplay from San Diego Comic-Con.

Nobody has more brains than Xavier Woods.

Wordplay Fett!

Why couldn't Doctor Strange have explored this universe? He probably would have been safer there.

Lady D gearing up for the next Resident Evil Village update.

It's simple. We be the Batman.

Check out more of the best cosplay from Variety, Entertainment Weekly, TMZ, and Bleeding Cool.

Nothing but the Hotfix

For one time only, GDQ Hotfix held a special Celeste tournament for runners. Check out these special bingo categories, which is a really cool idea and one I hope we see at a mainline GDQ someday.

GDQ's Hotfix shows air every week and you can catch them all at the Games Done Quick Twitch account.

This week in Shaqnews

Shaq continues to be one of the world's best humans.


Only one story in wrestling that matters this week.

The industry will never be the same after today.

Also, this has to mean there's smoke to the allegations that have been levied over the past few weeks. This story is far from over, so stay tuned.

Tonight in video game music

We're going to go back in time a bit to March of last year to track down GaMetal's mix of Megalomania. Yes, you bet we're celebrating Live A Live with this incredible track.

That's your Evening Reading to send you into this COMIC-CON WEEKEND!

Senior Editor

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
